Here’s everything you need to know about Leo Woodall now The White Lotus is making him the name on everyone’s lips.

Okay first of all, is he actually from Essex???

The shock of the millennia is that Leo Woodall actually isn’t from Essex. I know, I know – truly shocking.

Joey Essex having cultural relevance on critically acclaimed HBO shows thrills me so much you have no idea.
